Silly riff on the classic poem, with cute illustrations.

By the moon that shone on the new fallen snow,
I saw what I thought was a strange UFO.
It came out of the night and flew with a roar
And was pulled by eight huge dinosaurs.
This is a fun book with entertaining illustrations (we enjoyed looking for a mouse in many of the pictures). The plot is clever and original, but I liked the ending the best - I burst out laughing when I first read it to my son.
Fun with a dinosaur puppet and holiday, dino activites.
Definitely a novel idea.....

“Why thanks", Santa said. "you're awfully kind... (Though they are a bit snug ... on my ample behind."
"Don't worry," I told him, "you'll be all right...
Besides you'll need them Christmas Eve night."
So laying a finger aside of his nose
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose.
But I heard him exclaim ere he drove out of sight...
"They've RIPPED!
I knew these pants were too tight!”
